    "sweet Serendipity" Beautiful Story

    I'm amazed at this song by this guy who won the American Idol competition. His song is all about his story and he really is the anti-american idol - so he went from sleeping on couches to winning the biggest competition in the world. It sounds like a first hand real time example...

    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm

    I've seen a few boats with this name. And a few clubs. Why doesn't this group have more members? Perhaps because many do not even know the definition of "serendipity". I'm fortunate enough to say that serendipity has played a pleasant role in my life at times over the years. One...
